Most biographers of Marilyn Monroe feel confident in saying that Joe DiMaggio was the love of her life, and he allegedly never fell out of love with her. For decades after she died, Joe had half a dozen long-stemmed roses delivered to Marilyn’s grave twice per week. He did this regularly, having florists carefully deliver and place the flowers at Marilyn Monroe’s grave at Westwood Memorial Park in Los Angeles. Red roses were Marilyn’s favorite flower, and he expressed his love and respect for her in that sweet way. The romantic gesture adds to their legendary pairing.
